* First off, you might want to look at [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Awesome/ProGaming Pro Gaming]] for awesome competitive DOTA2 moments.
* Lion. He followed a demon into ''Hell,'' killed it, and tore off its arm to use for himself for good measure!
* If you've been to dev.dota2.com, [[http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=24462 This epic culture clash.]]
* Big teamfight ultimates almost always result in this and are commonly referred to as "Dropping the hammer". DotaCinema's [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLF50cvv4MhVoQDqmP0ANXhFtxoHx_O-GO Symphony of Skills]] series is focused on the numerous awesome moments that occur with stacking Ultimates onto each other at the same time.
* The International 3, already considered the biggest Esports event of the year, now has the largest prizepool for any single Esports tournament in history at $2.7 million and counting. It was $1.6 million at first, the standard prizepool for an International, but the Dota 2 community bought enough Compendiums at $10 a pop ($2.50 goes to the prizepool), and added more than a million dollars on their own. The International 3 has made Esports history before it has even occurred because of the community itself.
* Another on from The International 3: At the end of the game between Alliance and LGD, it becomes a flat-out race to get to the enemy ancient first. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56MryxzE6AE See for yourself]]. Tobi Wan's commentary makes it all the more entertaining.

* The last game of The International 3 between Na'Vi an Alliance was full of these. After a game that seemed to be firmly in Navi's favor, they started pushing the mid rax, and it seemed that Alliance was putting up a weak defense. However, this was actually a ruse; Nature's Prophet was pushing the top lane, Wisp and Chaos Knight were pushing the bottom. Realizing this, Navi tried to TP back en masse, but Puck (as played by s4) Dream Coiled them, interrupting the teleports and allowing Alliance to dispatch two rax for one. Later on, Alliance was pushing hard. Dendi, as a super fed Templar Assassin, tried to TP back to base. Puck was able to Dream Coil him to stop him from going back, but what's special about this is that if you look at replays or pictures, you can see that the interrupt was pulled off in about ''a fraction of a second'' before the TP was completed. Alliance won the game with what are being called the Million Dollar Dream Coils. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0zE8DcxpT4 See it here.]]
* Navi vs. Tongfu. Dendi performs multiple fountain hooks on more or less the entire tongfu team.
